Ten California hospitals fined for patient risks
San Francisco Chronicle, March 4, 2009
The California Department of Public Health said that 10 hospitals around the state have been given penalties for putting patients at risk as a result of not being in compliance with licensing requirements. The penalty is relatively small, $25,000, and the hospitals have 10 days during which they can appeal the finding. The state will also accept a payment schedule for the penalties.
